One those names was the "Great White" Sheamus who would become the WWE Champion less than a year following his debuted in December 2010 at WWE TLC PPV. For the first time in his career he gained a major PPV win against not just Main Event star, but also the World Champion. Sadly, for Sheamus though his first run with the title was very uneventful and did nothing for most if not the entire run. In 2011, Sheamus was moved to the Smackdown brand and was slowly transitioned to a good guy before his first heavyweight title reign a year later.
Over the last few years thing have gone rough for Sheamus including a couple of really bad years that he was just floating around the card. When he first debuted many thought that he'd be a future star for the company and of the building blocks for the future of the company and though his potential may have been over hyped it seems he has found a stable position on the roster that best fits his abilities. Overall, I think Sheamus has been a success in the WWE as he has found his place and made it through a tough time for the company as they tried to rebuild the roster and find new stars.
